Naval Academy Graduates First Paraplegic Student
(WJLA) It is a first for the United States Naval Academy. Among its 1,100 graduates will be a young man whose life changed forever when a tree fell on top of him.
Kevin Hillery, 22, is set to become the first ever paraplegic to graduate from the Naval Academy.
Hillery spent Memorial Day in Annapolis surrounded by family and friends preparing for a moment he thought might not come – graduation day.
“It was a really unprecedented case, so it just took a long time,” Hillery said.
